Collector of all types and compositions of toys and banks from 1860 to 1915, including cast iron, tin, wood, and paper. I also want photographs of children with toys and banks, catalogs, trade cards and boxes.

I am a member of the Antique Toy Collectors of America, the Mechanical Bank Collectors of America, and the Still Bank Collectors of America. I served as president of the MBCA and am very active in this organization. I have an inventory at all times and I broker individual items and collections for a reasonable fee.

Mechanical toys - toys with a clockwork mechanism.

Bell toys - toys which when pulled along the floor ring a bell or gong.

Mechanical banks - banks which have moving parts.

Still Banks - banks which are usually miniature depictions of a person, animal or building.

I collect and broker these items and I have built many collections:

My motto: "Honesty, Integrity, and Top Dollar"
